Healing Birth Scholarships 

For each round of Healing Birth Practitioner Training there will be 3 scholarships made available... that's almost $9000 worth each year!

Each scholarship covers the full $997 cost of the Healing Birth Skills Course OR 70% of the cost of the Healing Birth Practitioner Training or Healing Birth Practitioner Mentorship programmes.

How to Apply

Send an email to with SCHOLARSHIP as the subject line. Answer the following questions:

  • What's your name and phone number?

  • Which scholarship(s) from the 3 below are you applying for? (you can state more than one)

  • Which has been your favourite episode of the Healing Birth Podcast that you've listened to so far, and why?

  • Where has your interest in birth trauma support training come from?

  • Either create a short video (no more than 3 mins long) to attach to your email, or write in less than 250 words, why you would be an excellent choice for whichever scholarship(s) you are applying for.

Send your email! BOOM, you're in with the chance to do Carla's Healing Birth Skills Course for free or to get an amazing reduction on her certification trainings!
